Recently, we had the pleasure of hosting Jason Johnson, a foster and adoptive dad, pastor and national foster care leader for our first ever state-wide gathering of church partners. He was a huge encouragement to our team and partners and sent us some kind words we wanted to share as well as a link to his powerful blog so you can get to know him.

“Movements are not sustained through the efforts of one, but through the collaboration of many. The AZ127 network represents the best of what it can look like when churches partner together, not for their own individual good but for the good of the whole of children and families in their cities. It was a joy to spend time with some of their leaders recently and I’m always grateful to have them as a model to point to in my work with churches around the country.”
